Here we are at the end of a three week long intensive therapy at Napa Center. Today was our last day. With goal achieved for this trip.
First and foremost, I would like to thank God for giving me the strength, will and grace to start and complete this three weeks. For giving my family and friends wisdom in supporting us in the journey.
I would like to acknowledge my Son Aaron for a hard work, meeting every challenge he faced even when it was so hard, with positive attitude and enthusiasm and completed the three weeks and achieving the goal that was set for him. You never stop to amaze me Aaron. Extremely proud of you!
I would like to acknowledge my mom, who despite her recovery a few months ago, traveled with courage to support Aaron and I. When I grow up I want to be like you!
I would like to acknowledge my partner Marco Piccigallo, for his unshakable love, patience, and support by coming to LA physically and by standing with us from far in his absence so we can complete our three weeks. I love you!
I also would like to acknowledge the therapists at Napa Center and all the staff members for their dedication and vigorous dedication that had made a difference in Aaron’s life. Thank you for having this wonderful place for us.
I also would like to acknowledge our donors for their generosity without whom this wouldn’t have happened. You have made a difference for a child’s life and you have contributed to a community that we are building. I would like to acknowledge our core active AKfoundation team members David Drisbach, Tymn Urban, Catherine Ford, Rebecca Gaspar, Bhavana Chawla and no longer active member but who dedication to this cause speaks lauder in her heart and was a beautiful contribution for the launch of Aaronk Foundation Dakini Amitabha. None of this would have been possible without your dedication, creative minds, and contribution of your beautiful hearts!
